Hard Drive Short DST Check: FAILED

Product Name: HP ENVY Notebook - 15-k167cl
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I ran disagnostics on my hard drive as my computer started running slow and it failed a Hard Drive Short DST Check. The Failure ID if it helps is GK0HVK-7AD8AJ-MFPV7F-60XN03. I really want to get to the bottom of this issue as my computer is a necessity of life for me as a student.

Re: Hard Drive Short DST Check: FAILED

The hard drive will need replacement. Are you under warranty? This is the Service Manual if not:


See page 66 of the Manual. Replacement requires removing quite a few screws, but is otherwise pretty straightforward. 

Your model has a 1TB 5400 rpm SATA drive


This is a chance to install something a bit faster: a 7200 rpm mechanical, hybrid or solid state drive in increasing order of speed and cost. 


This would be an exact replacement for you:


But, as I said there are better options. If you need help with data and software migration/reinstallation let us know. Windows 10 is easy to reinstall since you can just download it from Microsoft. Do you have a backup of your data?
